ROMIYIM (Romans) 9:1-13

Romans 9

1  I speak the truth in Mashiaḥ, I do not lie, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Ruaḥ ha'Qodesh,

2  that I have great sadness and continual grief in my heart.

3  For I myself could have wished to be banished from Mashiaḥ for the sake of my brothers, my relatives according to the flesh,

4  who are Yisra'ĕlites, whose is the adoption, and the esteem, and the Covenants, and the giving of the Torah, and the worship, and the promises,

5  whose are the fathers, and from whom is ha'Mashiaḥ according to the flesh, who is over all, baruḵ of יהוה- forever. Amĕn.

6  However, it is not as though the word of יהוה has failed. For they are not all Yisra'ĕl who are of Yisra'ĕl,

7  neither are they all children because they are the seed of Aḇraham, but, "In Yitsḥaq your seed shall be called."

8  That is, those who are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of Elohim, but the children of the promise are reckoned as the seed.

9  For this is the word of promise, "At this time I shall come and Sarah shall have a son."

10  And not only so, but Riḇqah having conceived by one, our father Yitsḥaq.

11  Yet, before they were born or had done any good or evil - in order that the purpose of Elohim, according to choice, might stand, not of works but of Him who calls -

12  it was said to her, "The greater shall serve the lesser,"

13  as it has been written, "Yaʽaqoḇ I have loved, but Ěsaw I have hated."
